I empower entrepreneurs, artists, designers, educators, and communicators to make a social impact by building alliances within the scientific, policy, and business communities. 

I vision, strategize, and realize programs and platforms for promoting public understanding of environmental issues and for advancing solutions to environmental sustainability challenges.

I have a particular passion for developing exhibitions that promote public dialogue about science and society and encourage informed civic engagement in evidence-based decision-making.

I am particularly excited about the advancement of renewable energy and energy efficiency technology for mitigating climate change while ensuring sustainable economic growth.

I received my Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography from MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). My doctoral research centered on the impacts of ocean acidification and climate change on coral reefs.
